The CW's Official Description:

After Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) discovers that Lionel (John Glover) installed cameras in the mansion, he hires some thugs to bug Lionel's office, but things get out of control when Lionel and Martha (Annette O'Toole) surprise the thugs and are taken hostage. Clark (Tom Welling) must figure out a way to save his mother without exposing his powers and sees his chance on an adjacent tall building - if only he could make the leap in a single bound.

Kristin Kreuk, Allison Mack, Sam Jones III, and John Schneider also star. James Marshall directed the episode written by Kenneth Biller & Jeph Loeb.

Notes:

When Clark jumps he is wearing a blue shirt and red jacket. While he is flying (or falling) through the air the red jacket is flapping, somewhat like a cape.

The female cop in Metropolis' name is Sawyer -- a likely reference to Maggie Sawyer of the comic book and Metropolis, head of the Special Crimes Unit (the unit which deals with super-powered stuff) and a friend of Superman's.

Sam Jones III and Allison Mack do not appear in this episode.

This episode marks the first time the Daily Planet building has made a prominent appearance.

Some folks felt that Jonathan saying, "Clark, this is between your mother and I." and Jennifer saying, "Henry, why don't you get it...give Lana and I a chance to get a word in." was incorrect grammar. Some disputed that. For the current accepted manner of I/me usage, see here and here. So yes, it should be "me" instead of "I".

Isn't Lex wondering how Clark got to Metropolis before he and Jonathan did? If the fastest way to go was Lex's helicopter and Clark didn't use it.

When the girl Bishop is cutting the vault door open she grabs the piece she cut off with thin gloves. Now I've welded and used a plasma torch before and believe me when I say that even with very thick welding gloves you would not pickup and carry a piece of metal to the other side of the room like that.

If there are cameras and bug devices in Lex's office...you would think they would catch a few of Clark's powers in action?

Why doesn't anyone wonder about how Clark got into the building? Or about the blow in window? The Metropolis police seems as indifferent to Clark's shenanigans as the Smallville cops.

Unintended Hidden Mike? When Clark and Lex are seen talking in Lex's office, right before Lex finds the camera in his stereo, a shadow of a sound recording mic can be seen above them, on the wall.

Pine doesn't wear gloves when he sprays the liquid nitrogen or whatever into the vault lock and the white gas is all over his left hand - ouch!

Lex notes that he can't imagine how someone got into the mansion without his knowledge. How many people have wandered in and out of there in the last two seasons where he's lucky if the guy at the gate calls ahead? Even in this episode, Jonathan strolls in to ask Lex for a helicopter ride and Lex doesn't seem to have a clue he's coming.

Pine doesn't seem to be brightest tactician ever, but even he should know better than to show his face at the window when the building is surrounded by news cameras and police snipers.
